Healthcare Engineering – System Engineering Approach to Healthcare Delivery

The Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE) started in 2006 by the Regenstrief Foundation with a mission to pursue a transformed health system by conducting impactful research through collaborative partnerships. In this presentation, Dr. Yih will give an overview of RCHE and present selected on-going projects/studies in the center that are applying system engineering principles to improve access and care quality. Examples will include research in the areas of evidence generation from observational data, matching supply and need, and improving care for vulnerable populations.
